About Escot House

Escot Park, Ottery St. Mary
Devon, EX11 1LU

Welcome to exclusive use East Devon wedding venue, Escot House, a stunning Georgian stately home surrounded by 220 acres of tranquil parkland. Escot is the privately owned home of the Kennaway family, who have lived here since 1794.

As a setting for weddings, Escot offers a perfect combination of light-filled rooms, gardens and terrace. You will enjoy stunning views over the parkland with its lake, lawns, and wonderful 'champion' trees. Escot offers the perfect backdrop for your wedding photography.

Our catering is in-house and boasts an excellent reputation; we use locally sourced produce and trusted local suppliers and cater for all dietary requirements. As we are a private venue, we can react with total flexibility to our couple’s specific wishes and we offer outstanding value for all bookings, large or small.

The support staff at our venue are highly experienced and several have been with us for many years. Your booking includes the services of our wedding organiser who will help you to ensure you have the day you have dreamed of. After more than 20 years as a wedding venue, we understand how important it is to provide a supportive environment which allows you to relax and enjoy your day with absolute confidence. We can help you with as much or as little as you like.

Escot is licensed for Civil Ceremonies, so you can say your vows in one of our elegant and spacious day rooms.

Your wedding reception can be as formal or as informal as you want it to be. We offer three options: a formal wedding breakfast with a full waiter service, a seated wedding buffet, or a standing buffet with waiters circulating with canapes with some seating still provided.

We want your guests to enjoy their day and will help you organise entertainment for children and adults alike. We have many onsite activities such as Segway, archery and clay shoots if you want a reception with a difference!

We could not have wished for a better day
Venue Service

By Emma Chan, on 08 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 01 Aug 2015

Thank you so much for the hire of Escot for our wedding day. The house and grounds looked beautiful, the food was outstanding and the service was excellent. We could not have wished for a better day. We are also grateful for all of the advice given to us in the lead up to the wedding. it was a wonderful day - we could not recommend Escot highly enough. Thank you.

Incredible value for money
Venue Service

By Victoria Smith, on 06 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 02 May 2015

We had the most amazing wedding at Escot in May 2015. Because it's a family-run business, the whole experience of organising and holding the wedding there felt very personal, and Lucy was happy to respond to little requests we had to make the place really feel like ours, such as putting the American and British flags up the flagpole, and the team set up the rooms and tables wonderfully. The food was fantastic and really exceeded our expectations (self-confessed foodies!) - the canapes in particular were delicious and beautifully presented, and so many people said the cheeseboard was the best they've ever seen! The house itself was the perfect venue - enough space for people to explore, but small enough to keep everyone together and mingling. The weather on our wedding day was terrible, but it didn't matter at all because the inside of the house is lovely (especially impressive for the Americans, who thought they were in a Jane Austen novel). Both Jo and Lucy were really helpful and no-nonsense in the run up, and struck the right balance of responding to the type of day we wanted, with their own experience of running weddings. We want to thank the whole team for their hard work and help - it really is incredible value for money as a venue.

What a lovely venue

We both just wanted to say a massive thank you for such a fantastic wedding day. We both enjoyed the day very much. The house looked beautiful and so many people said what a lovely venue we chose. So thankyou for everybody's hard work and for making it such a special day for us.
